In good thirteen months, the International Dental Show (IDS) will open its doors, but the preparations for the 39th IDS, which is taking place in Cologne from 9 to 13 March 2021, are already in full swing. On making the online application available at the start of January, the GFDI Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Dental-Industrie mbH, the commercial enterprise of the Verband der Deutschen Dental-Industrie e.V. (VDDI) (Association of German Dental Manufacturers) and Koelnmesse have given the go-ahead for the next edition of the world's largest trade fair for dental medicine and dental technology. In the run-up to the trade fair, Koelnmesse has already received numerous inquiries for stand area from companies. As a result of these positive signs, the organisers are also expecting a huge amount of interest from the entire dental world in IDS 2021, similar to the outstanding results of IDS 2019.
More than 2,300 exhibitors from 65 countries presented their products and services for comparison in Cologne amid fair conditions and they encountered 160,000 trade visitors from 166 countries. IDS 2019 thus impressively underlined its claim to leadership as the undisputed leading global trade fair and unique trendsetter for the global industry.
More convenient online application service for exhibitors:
The strong demand from home and abroad shows that IDS is the central, international business platform. Companies that want to be successful in this industry, have to face the competition in Cologne. The trade fair presence should correspondingly be planned in good time. The exhibitors of IDS and interested companies can use the new, convenient, user-friendly online application process at https://application.ids-cologne.de/ with immediate effect.
Parallel to the application, it is of course necessary to plan one's accommodation arrangements for the trade fair. Useful information on a trade fair participation can be found on the IDS website, but also direct travel and the desired accommodation reservations can be booked at no extra cost. The online booking system contains numerous partner hotels, but also bed & breakfast offers - directly in Cologne or in the surrounding region. There are a variety of accommodation options in all price and quality categories in the metropolitan area around Cologne/Bonn/Düsseldorf, starting from simple guest houses and private accommodation services through to luxurious five-star hotels. The accommodation offers in and around Cologne go down very well with our trade fair guests thanks to the excellent accessibility of the fair grounds through the local transport system. In addition to their IDS admission ticket, visitors to IDS also receive a free transport ticket for public transport in the Cologne region and throughout the entire Ruhr area. This means that trade visitors who travel from the metropolitan area of Düsseldorf, Duisburg, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Mülheim and Dortmund, who have booked accommodation there or who fly to Düsseldorf, can travel to the trade fair in Cologne using an Interregio train and further local transport options free of charge. And also the exhibitors of IDS can use the Rhein-Sieg (VRS) and Rhein-Ruhr (VRR) public transport systems free of charge on presentation of their exhibitor passes.
IDS (International Dental Show) takes place in Cologne every two years and is organised by the GFDI Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Dental-Industrie mbH, the commercial enterprise of the Association of German Dental Manufacturers (VDDI) and is staged by Koelnmesse GmbH, Cologne.
